GAME RESULT: TKL 2 - Toronto Latvians 3

A thrilling NA Baltic Cup exhibition game was witnessed by an enthusiastic crowd of 100 last night as the Toronto Latvians defeated our TKL 3-2, at George Bell arena Friday, January 26th, 2007 at 6pm. Thanks to all who attended, your cheers were greatly appreciated!

The game started out slowly with the Latvians scoring first in the last minute of the first period, followed by two more quick ones early in the second.

TKL fought back midway through the second and scored their first goal, a nice shot in the top corner by #14 - Steve Podsadecki on a feed from #9 - Alvin Kišonas at the 10 minute mark.

TKL kept the pressure on and a few minutes later, #13 - Juozas Zenkevičius tucked one in, passed from #69 - Gintas Batūra, behind the sprawling Latvian netminder.

The third period was closely contested with TKL having several scoring chances but were denied by the Latvians. TKL's #25 - Brian Mielko almost tied it up with just 3 seconds remaining as the puck came to rest on the goal line!

After-game festivities on Latvian Night at the The Dark Horse were well attended by our fans. TKL's next stop will be at the North American Baltic Cup in Toronto. Stay tuned, right here, for details to follow.

A strong Estonian team had to battle back from a 2-0 deficit to overcome new NA Baltic Cup rivals, the Toronto Latvians, with some third period heroics to claim a 5-3 win. A number of penalties were assessed and the game was watched by 30+ fans.

Some TKL historical photos

Here's a couple old photos I found in an old North American Lithuanian sports club book (Išeivijos lietuvių sportas 1944-84 - Čerkeliunas, Mickevičius, Krašauskas).

There were two teams from Toronto back then and we all travelled to Boston, Chicago and Detroit in the early 80s. Now their kids play on the TKL (they're in their 30s!). We even have a couple of these original players -from the other squad - in uniform today.

Hope to see everyone come out to watch us play the Latvians on January 26th at George Bell Arena!
